More than any room in the house, the kitchen needs to be practical and functional. So getting your kitchen layout right is the most important factor when designing your dream kitchen. Whether your space is small or large, a clever layout will make all the difference in helping you to get the most out of the space.

The idea is that you step once or turn around to access critical bench space from key appliances – oven, stove, fridge, sink.
